Kentucky ends panel system for medical malpractice

On November 15, the Kentucky Supreme Court struck a blow on behalf of victims of medical malpractice across the Commonwealth. The Court struck down a much-decried law that forced potential litigants to go through a lengthy and cumbersome review system by finding the law violated the Kentucky Constitution.

In the hospital? Take steps to protect yourself from mistakes

Hospitals are incredibly busy places, and mistakes happen all the time. Nurses, doctors and aides are often overloaded with too many patients to handle, so you simply can't assume that everyone who walks into your room understands your medical condition or why you are being treated.

Can you prevent 'wrong site, wrong surgery' injuries?

You've probably heard horror stories about patients who have been victims of "wrong site, wrong surgery" injuries. Those are situations where something happens like the surgeon operates on a patient's left elbow instead of the right, or performs a knee replacement on a patient who was supposed to have a hernia repaired.
